Grandma's Visit

Having my mom down to visit for a few days this week was wonderful.  We took the 3 days she was here and simply enjoyed our time with her.  No major plans necessary.  A refreshing time...tons of fun and laughs and Phase 10!
Her only request in coming was to go to Cafe Pig for some of their Brunswick Stew.  I was totally okay with this request...their stew is the best in all of GA and, just possibly, the entire country.  In the opinion of yours truly anyway.
We took Mom out to Cafe Pig for her birthday on Tuesday.  The day it decided to pour down rain.  It made it the perfect weather for a great bowl of stew.  We were not disappointed in our lunch choice, as usual.
Grandma always makes life better.  I'm so thankful we are able to see and visit with her several times each year even though we live 8 hours apart.
Alex and Tim agreed that this was one of the best weeks we've had in a long time.
We love you!

    Happy Saturday!

My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
